Description: A fine, dark and rich impression printed on a small sheet of old laid paper (probably taken from a book) with uneven margins, signed in pencil and numbered 2. According to Hausberg, impressions with the pencilled 2 were second-state proofs, but if, as she say, the plate signature was added only in the fourth state then this must be a fourth state. Roussel makes full use of the soft-ground technique to produce the print equivalent of a black crayon drawing
